Bible Commentary for 1 Kings 14:4

Wesley's Notes for 1 Kings 14:4


14:2 His wife - Because she might without suspicion enquire concerningher own child; and because she would enquire exactly, and diligently, andfaithfully acquaint him with the truth. Disguise - Change thy habit, andvoice, and go like a private and obscure person. This caution proceeded:first, from the pride of his heart, which made him loth to confess his follyin worshipping such helpless idols, and to give glory to the God whom he hadforsaken. Secondly, from jealousy and suspicion, lest the prophet knowingthis, should either give her no answer, or make it worse than indeed it was.Thirdly, from policy, lest his people should by his example be drawn toforsake the calves, and to return to the God of Judah.

14:3 And take - A present, after the manner, but mean, as became anordinary country woman, which she personated. It had been more pious toenquire, why God contended with him.

14:6 Thou wife - By which discovery he both reproves their folly, whothought to conceal themselves from God, and withal gives her assuranceof the truth, and certainty of that message which he was to deliver.
